JT joined the Classic Car Club in 2014 during our restoration of a 1943 Willys Jeep. At first he was very shy and lacking in confidence, finding it difficult to converse with his peers and mentors. Despite the shyness, he persevered and began to show that he had a real interest in cars with an eagerness to learn, showing great attitude towards automobile engineering. He soon became a lot more confident with the other members of the group, both adult and young people and in time he gained an apprenticeship within the automobile trade.
